While I’m sure every single one of us counting down the days until this whole situation is over, the Great Lockdown of 2020 is a major historic event, and it’s important to document it as such. The news media might be filled with terrifying headlines and anxiety inducing figures, but the day-to-day reality for the majority of us are long days of home-school and laptop Zoom meetings, punctuated by our government-approved daily walks and weekly queue around the supermarket carpark. For the essential workers among us, random sleeping patterns and layers of masks and gloves are becoming a reality to which we’re having to adjust.
We are living through a period of time that will eventually be studied in history classes for generations to come, and while the politicians and figures will be well documented, the daily life of the general population during this period is equally important. I’d love to create a visual time-capsule of this strange time, capturing the smiles and tears, chapped hands and window rainbows, grown-out hair styles and sourdough starters, hopefully spreading some joy in these interesting times.
This is where you come in! I’d like to incorporate some mini portrait sessions with my daily walk, taking shots of families on their doorsteps, or from their flat window, showing future generations what it was really like to be living though this lockdown. Obviously all social distancing rules will be observed (I’ve got a great zoom lens) and the images will be sent to you digitally. This will be completely free, however if any of you would like to make a donation to a fantastic local charity doing some great work, I’ll pop the link below.
Just message me if you are in the PE4 area, and would like to be involved, and I will swing by your home on my daily walks, from a safe distance of course. Obviously all social distancing rules will be observed (I’ve got a great zoom lens) and the images will be sent to you digitally.
This will be completely free, however if any of you would like to make a donation to the fantastic local charity Give Back Peterborough doing some great work, I’ll pop the link below.
Be a part of history!
